Saoirse Ronan on Her Eyes: 'My Eyes Became A Huge Part of How I Communicate On-Screen'
Saoirse Ronan shows off her dewy complexion in a black and white shot on the March issue of Interview magazine.
Here’s what the 21-year-old actress, interviewed by Jodie Foster, had to share with the mag:
On her relationship with her mother: I’m really close to my mom as well, and she came away with me up until I was 19…My mom has always been so wonderful and she’s always said to me exactly what you said: to always trust your instincts. And whether it’s about a script or whether to live in this city or live in that city, if you’re questioning it, maybe it’s not quite right for you.
On experiencing sadness after she wrapped Atonement: I told my mom that I was still very sad from Atonement and not being a part of that experience anymore. I said to her, “I don’t really have that much to say.” And she said, “You know, you don’t have to tell a story through words, you can always tell a story with just your face and your eyes.” I think it was from that moment that my eyes became a huge part of how I would communicate on-screen.
On the pressure she feels from her Oscar nomination: That’s the worst thing for me. I’m a huge worrier as well. The thing that I would worry about after being nominated again is, “How do I keep that up?” Not in relation to awards, but keeping up performances.
